Cleveland Indians SS Zach Walters was sent to Class AAA Columbus. In corresponding moves, RP Jeff Manship was promoted to the parent club and SP Shaun Marcum was designated for assignment Thursday, June 18.
Fantasy Tip: Ordinarily players like Walters ($1,500, 3.0% of cap) wouldn't merit much mention, but this appears to be a sign the club intends to play Francisco Lindor ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) and Mike Aviles ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) more often. Keep an eye on how this affects Lindor in particular.

Cleveland Indians SS Zach Walters is starting at third base and batting seventh against Seattle Mariners S Taijuan Walker Wednesday, June 10.
Fantasy Tip: Walters projects to see nearly everyday at-bats at third base, and he is worth a speculative add in AL-only leagues. It would be best to take a wait-and-see elsewhere, and especially in daily contests. Giovanny Urshela is Walters' only real competition for playing time currently.

Cleveland Indians SS Jose Ramirez was optioned to Class AAA Columbus on Sunday, June 7. The club recalled SS Zach Walters to the parent club in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: Ramirez ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) should have seen the writing on the wall as Mike Aviles ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) has revived his career with the Indians. Ramirez had a .180 average at the time of his demotion. He can be removed from all daily consideration. You may even want to drop him from yearly leagues, because top prospect Francisco Lindor will likely be up later in the season and relegate Ramirez to the scrap heap.

Cleveland Indians SS Zach Walters was used in left field Sunday, Aug. 10, and as the designated hitter Tuesday, Aug. 12. Manager Terry Francona said he wants to test Walters' versatility over the next several weeks. "We need to find out how versatile he can be," Francona said. "With his power and his ability to switch-hit, if he can play short, that's always kind of the key. A guy that can play short and the outfield, that kind of lengthens out your roster."
